  1. I Called You Back Baby (3:03)
  2. Impressions Of You (3:54)
Review: Last year Kelly Finnigan - son of storied Hammond organist Mike Finnigan - released his debut album, "The Tales People Tell", a gloriously authentic and wholehearted tribute to 1960s soul and funk. It's from that set that these two tracks are taken. A-side "I Called You Baby" is an unflinchingly heavy deep funk workout rich in bustling breakbeats, memorable guitar riffs, sustained organ chords and fiery horn riffs, all topped off with a brilliant lead vocal from Finnigan. On flipside "Impressions of You", Finnigan switches mood, adding another heartfelt, passionate vocal to a slow, loved-up backing track that's every bit as impressive as the club-ready A-side.

  1. Marvin's Mood (part 1) (4:21)
  2. Marvin's Mood (part 2) (2:57)
Review: You don't have to look far to find a Marvin Gaye edit or sample but few are as tasteful as this new 7" from Roots member Stro Elliot who is a master of chopping up and sampling sounds. He proves that again here as "Marvin's Mood (Part 1)" feels like a wholly new beat, with lush instrumental, lo-fi drums and carefully deployed vocal coos from the master of soul himself. "Marvin's Mood "Part 2)" makes use of similar samples but layers them over a more rolling and crisp boom-bap beat. Both are full of heart and will have early evening floors keen to get moving.

  1. Johnny Hernandez - "Ain't No Big Thing" (3:56)
  2. Black Pumas - "Look At My Soul" (feat Kam Franklin) (3:27)
Review: Two years ago, Nacional Records released "Look at My Soul", an album from funk-soul multi-instrumentalist and producer Adrian Quesada that featured a wealth of guest performers. Here the LA label revisits the project, offering up two of the album's most potent cuts on "45" for the very first time. Veteran Latin American Texan Johnny Hernandez stars on superb A-side "Ain't No Big Thing", adding his gravelly but emotion-rich voice to a languid chunk of jaunty, horn-heavy 1960s style soul. On B-side cut "Look At My Soul", Quesada's psychedelic soul band Black Pumas are accompanied by righteous soul diva Kam Franklin on an even more emotive, organ-heavy chunk of end-of-night soul. By the end, we guarantee you'll be holding a lighter aloft and singing along with your eyes closed.

  1. Oh Linda (2:45)
  2. Track 2 (2:42)
Review: In 1977, Atlanta fusionists Starfoxx had a big hit in the US Billboard chart with "Disco Rock", a cut that -as the title suggests - added a rock and rhythm & blues edge to the then dominant disco sound. It was something of a novelty, but much of their earlier work is pretty darn hot. "Oh Linda", which first appeared in stores in 1973, could well be the hottest of the lot. Sitting somewhere between the rasping blues-rock of Cream and more extravagant American funk and soul, the track is full to bursting with crunchy Clavinet riffs, throaty vocals and mazy electric piano solos. This reissue from TRAMP contains just the one track (pressed to both sides for some reason), but don't let that put you off: it really is a must-have.

  7. Smile (5:06)
  8. Ungodly War (4:19)
Review: Since its creator pressed and released it himself in 1981, Louisville gospel musician Lamont Butler's sole album, "It's Time For A Change", has become something of an in-demand item amongst collectors. As this timely reissue proves, the album has aged rather well. Rich in infectious grooves, righteous lyrics, superb vocals (mostly provided by the man himself, with the occasional assistance of a gospel choir) and addictive instrumentation, the album's ten tracks range from funky church hall stompers ("Get Up And Praise The Lord") and deliciously jazzy slow jams ("Thank You Lord"), to summery soul songs ("Time For A Change") and the kind of hybrid folk-soul that was once associated with the late, great Terry Callier ("Smile"). In a word: superb.

Review: It would be fair to say that Nick Hakim's new album - his third, following 2017's breakthrough set "Green Twins" - is not a barrel of laughs. It is, though, something of a stunner. So while the lyrics are thoughtful, weighty and heartfelt, mixing social and political commentary with the kind of care-worn personal introspection he does so well - the music is stirring and emotion-rich, offering a take on soul that fuses grandiose, wall-of-sound production (read: lots of reverb) with densely layered backing vocals, snare-heavy beats, and slightly psychedelic instrumentation that recalls both the glory days of conscious soul and the kind of lo-fi soul that revels in its stripped-back looseness. Highlights are plentiful throughout, with the epic "Qadir" and super-sweet "Crumpy" initially catching the ear.

  4. The West Coast (interlude) (1:04)
  5. Je Plane (feat Crenoka) (3:35)
Review: If smooth, synth-powered soul is your bag, we'd suggest checking out this EP from French future R&B star Jean Janin AKA Cezaire. It begins with a sumptuous slice of '80s soul revivalism featuring guests Phabo and Jordan Lee (the really rather good "You Came In Time") and ends with a bubbly chunk of deep electro-soul ("Je Plane", featuring Crenoka). In between, Janin treats us to some sparse, drowsy and distant lo-fi soul ("Beyonce"), a spacey slown jam featuring immaculate lead vocals by Ayelle (the synth-bass-propelled goodness of "The Answer"), and an all-to-short tribute to talkbox-sporting Los Angeles synth-funk jams of the 1980s ("The West Coast").

  1. I've Got Plenty Of Nothin' (2:47)
  2. Think Love (2:18)
Review: Blue-eyed soul singer Mickey Carroll made his name in the late 1970s, offering up a handful of singles and a couple of rock-solid albums. His musical journey began much earlier though, as "I've Got Plenty Of Nothing" proves. It was recorded in 1969 but never officially released, presumably because Carroll couldn't find a label to put it out on. This then is the track's first release. It's well worth picking up, not least because it fixes his country-tinged, crooner style vocals to a stomping, Northern Soul style backing track with added big band horns. Flipside "Think Love" swings more than it stomps, with an arrangement and vocal delivery that reminded us a little of Terry Callier's "Ordinary Joe".
